I went to the Smokey Mountain Smokeout, a chopper rally in NC, this weekend. Indian Larry of Discovery Channel's Biker Build Off fame had a Tiki themed chopper there. The frame was molded and painted to look like bamboo, the tank was painted in a metalflake woodgrain with an airbrushed Tiki holding wrenches, and the jockey shifter was a Spastic Plastic Dino w/Fez Tiki. There were also lots of liitle touches and some great pinstriping. It was a cool chopper!

Great pic. I always knew it would be a matter of time before someone built a tiki themed chopper. Do you have any close detail shots.

The bike I imaged would have had two tiki torches mounted horizontialy on the back that would shoot out flames during acceleration. A side car for fez wearing monkeys would be pretty cool too.

Maybe also a "Hawaiian Pride" license plate holder.

That bike works for me. Post more photos if you have any. Bamboo-like frame is really nice.

The wood grain effect is inspired.
